Are there any shows which you absolutely despise, and you felt that way from the instant your first saw them ?
Mine are :
The Royle Family
Mrs Browns Boys
x factor
Britains got Talent
Last of the Summer Wine
There are probably more, but I can't think of any right now !
These are programmes that if my wife accidentally flicks them on, I literally sceam "GET IT OFF !!"

Steptoe and Son (I find it so so scary. My husband likes to put it on to scare me, i too literally scream at him to turn it off, and have to leave the room).

Mrs Browns boys
Take me out
Towie (Just from the trailer I know I hate it)
That singing program with Keith Lemon and Stacey Solomon, I hated from the trailer. Same with Love Machine with Chris Moyles and Stacey.

I so agree with the Royale Family and Mrs Browns Boys. I can't understand why either have become national treasures - madness!

I hate ANYTHING with Keith Lemon/Leigh Francis, anything like TOWIE/Made in Chelsea/etc. I also don't like shows like the Inbetweeners or Shameless because they are just too crude. I feel like such an old fogey sometimes but I just really don't like excessive swearing, toilet humour, or the same tired innuendo.

Katie and Peter, or anything that involves these two, I saw ten minutes of this vulgar chav fest and developed an instant dislike to it. How anyone finds their lives interesting beats me?

She was another of these pointless zelebs that appeared in the noughties, who won a reality show and then latched on to the whole HEAT/ITV2/ Daily Star celeb culture that was so big 5 years ago.

I know who she is but all she ever really was was Katie and Jade light.

The shows would of preferred them but if they were to busy Kerry got the call all they needed was a bottle of Vodka and the show was made.

TOWIE; dumb wannabees, Made In Chelsea; rich people who want to be famous too, Geordie Shore; chavs, lots and lots of chavs.
Strictly/Dancing on Ice; Boring
Homes under the hammer/bargain hunt; granny tv
90210/Revenge; overly dressed Americans have ridiculous problems. Who cares
C Lister does something vague in order to get in the papers for a few months.
